    I don't know what the previous reviewer considers "Classics" unless it was just music With which THEY were familiar. This book has wonderful classics with which ANY good pianist should become familiar. Lots of great technical study, mixed with wonderful musical selections. I am using this as a supplement...

    with Thompson's First Grade Book. I started it when the student was about 3/4 through the book. I had been using other technic books but this particular student was bored with them. I pulled out this book and she loves it! They are not simple pieces. Your student will have to work at them, but they get a great feeling of accomplishment, along with a terrific piece of music when they finish. The student will have something worth playing for family, friends, or talent shows at school or church when they learn these.

    i was expecting a book with several classics--instead the book contained only one--Handel's Messiah. I like this work, but i did not want only one piece of music. really disappointed.
